Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The cast of this 1967 performance is excellent, led energetically by Franco Capuana... But of course the center of the revival, and its raison d'etre, is Leyla Gencer. And what a remarkable artist! On this disc of a lost opera from a golden age of opera creativity, we are able to experience through Gencer an era of musical vitality and the great interpreters who encountered these works when they were new. Such is her vitality." -Ira Siff. This release includes a 44-page booklet with historic photos, a complete Italian libretto with a new original English translation, and an essay on the performance by Ira Siff.
